Hello and praise the Lord from the Stanford Church of the Nazarene. We are glad you have taken the time to read our article this week and hope you find some encouragement from it.

Question of the week: Did you know that there is a cure for the anxiety and fear caused by the world? Did you know that the cure is found in the Christmas story and the birth of Jesus Christ?

To find more answers, you can visit YouTube and watch this past Sunday’s services as we looked at Luke 2:1-20 and the subject of “The Birth of Hope.” Our focus for this week has been on the hope and joy that is found in Jesus Christ and how our faith in Him relieves us of the worry and anxiety that comes with each and every day.

Also, we would like to express our thanks to all who helped with and came in support of this year’s Christmas production, “The Christmas Shoes!”

Want to sing? Come join us on Sunday nights. The first Sunday night of every month is “Song and Testimony” night and every Sunday night is “open mic.” If the Lord has placed a song and/or testimony on your heart we would encourage you to come be with us and share.

Want to watch live but can’t make it on Sunday? Navigate to Bro. Buford’s Facebook page, (Buford Edwards II) and tune in for the Facebook Live, stream of Sunday’s services.
